Taken from “A Course In Miracles” – Lesson 97
“I am Spirit.”
This is an idea that identifies you with your One Self. It accepts no split identity, nor tries to weave opposing factors into unity. It simply states the truth.
When you practice this truth as often as you can, it will bring your mind from conflict to the quiet fields of peace. No chill of fear can enter, for your mind has been absolved from madness… you have let go illusions of a split identity.
The truth about your Self is the holy Spirit of God rests in you. As such, YOU ARE THE SPIRIT lovingly endowed with all your Father’s love and peace and joy.
YOU ARE THE SPIRIT Which completes Himself and shares His Function as Creator. He is with you always, as you are with Him.
Try to bring reality closer to your mind. Each time you practice, awareness is brought a little nearer; sometimes a thousand years or more are saved. The minutes which you give are multiplied over and over….., for the miracle makes use of time but is not ruled by it.
Expressed through you, the gift received of the Holy Spirit, increases its power and gives it back to you.
If you are part of God, it is also the idea of YOURSELF, as well as of all the parts of God. The idea of the Holy Spirit shares the property of other ideas, because it follows the laws of the universe of which IT is a part. Therefore, it is strengthened by being given away. The Holy Spirit increases in YOU as you give it to your brothers.
Begin these happy exercises with the words the Holy Spirit speaks to you, and let them echo round the world through Him:
“Spirit am I, a holy Son of God, free of all limits, safe and healed and whole, free to forgive, and free to save the world.”
